Another satisfied customer here. I ordered the inks on the 17th (granted, it took a while to get posted out - 7 days, but there was a disclaimer when I went to checkout, so I wasn't too worried about it). It arrived today, and I have to say, it was quite well packaged. The pouches had been snap sealed to prevent leakages, and everything arrived intact. I can't wait to try them out, and plan on writing up a few reviews. I purchased the bright blue, green and orange. 

 

The only thing that I wanted to mention was that I no longer see the 150ml and 400ml pouches available for sale. Are they sold out, or are these options no longer available? (I haven't even used the inks yet, and I'm already thinking about how to get more  :wacko: someone get me some help).

 

We discontinued the 150 and 400ml pouches because the demand was so low but now that the inks have become more well known we will try them again.

Please make the black more saturated or release a deeper black!

Sydney customer here looking for a nice deep black!

 

I'm currently talking to a German based OEM ink manufacturer about a Permanent Blue and Black to compliment the Toucan range and these will be much more saturated inks. I'll post here when I have news about them but it may be some time yet. But these inks won't have Toucan's low maintenance and fountain pen "friendliness". Unfortunately the more saturated an ink is (or any solution) the greater the risk of the solute (the dye in these inks) crystallizing, leading to high pen maintenance and flow problems.

 

We've also been mixing the Toucan inks to try and make a darker black and a small amount of crimson added to the black has worked best so far. When we get time we're going to develop a mixing chart for these inks and publish some ink mixing recipes. We may even throw it open to our customers and invite submission of ink recipes in some type of competition with ink and pen giveaways for the most popular recipes.

Adding a dark red to black to darken it would make sense. Whenever I have split out the dyes of a black ink with chromatography, they usually have a red component.

 

Meanwhile I await with bated breath your Permanent Black and Blue.

Yeah, I noticed crimson really doesn't like shading at all.

 

The blue is nice though (the royal blue, I think?)

:wub:   In fairness, I downloaded the outline as coloring book page and then started filling it in with the colors.  Do you think I can get a paint by the numbers Mona Lisa?

Amberlea - before you go wild with this, take a good look at her face and the fact that she has a mustache. What would Leonardo think if his masterpiece ended up with a lime green 'stach??

Breathe.  Take one step at a time.  Don't sweat the small stuff.  You're not getting older, you are only moving through time.  Be calm and positive.
